OTT/Lufft SVR 100 Surface Velocity Radar

Non-contact sensor for measuring open channel flow continuously

The OTT SVR 100 is the ideal sensor to collect surface water velocity measurements without being installed in the water, for all the benefits of non-contact measurement.

This simple and compact radar sensor with integrated SDI-12 interface provides data during floods or times of high suspended sediments. By being installed above the water, the sensor is safe from rising water levels or floating debris.

Only the OTT SVR 100 has an ultra-compact mounting design with flexible angle of inclination for mounting vertically or horizontally with measurement quality and vibration index parameters.

The sensor allows specialists like hydrologists and program managers to identify data influenced by sensor movement (e.g., wind, traffic) using meta data from integrated vibration and tilt sensors. The sensor easily integrates with new or existing systems using SDI-12 or SDI-12 (over RS-485). It is also compatible with OTT Prodis 2 software used for system calibration.
